AMMAN – Middle East University welcomed the international programmes’ incoming freshmen of the 2019/2020 academic year during a reception ceremony organised by the Deanship of International Programmes. Dr. Ahmad Nasereddin, Member of the Board of Trustees, was in attendance and welcomed students, wishing them luck and success.
Incoming freshmen listened to a briefing about MEU’s accomplishments over the past decade, especially in the area of achieving international recognition through joint programmes. Two International partnerships and agreements with the universities of Bedfordshire and Strathclyde in the UK have given Jordanian students the unprecedented opportunity to enrol in a British graduate programme in pharmacy (MPharm), along with a selection of other jointly-run programmes hosted on MEU’s campus that award students prestigious British degrees.
In his address to students during the meeting, the Vice President for Scientific Faculties, Alaa’ Al Halhouli, emphasised that, “MEU aims to graduate well-rounded students with top employability skills” adding that, “MEU’s unique blend of teaching methods and extracurricular activities is guaranteed to offer students one of the best learning experiences in Jordan.”
Ms. Tricia Smart, Senior Lecturer at the University of Bedfordshire, attended the meeting, remarking that the joint partnership between the two universities was a source of pride for BEDS. “Education is the most promising window for establishing a cooperative relationship between the United Kingdom and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The quality of a British education is recognised and respected globally, as four British universities currently hold positions in the international list of top ten universities. The UK also values innovation, which is what led a number of British universities to establish multiple partnerships with international institutions, allowing them to contribute to advanced research and participate in novel experiences. Currently, there are thousands of brilliant Jordanian youths who recognise the significance of education to their future and to the future of Jordan. The partnership between BEDS and MEU will help transform the future of the two countries and pave the way for the success of future generations.”
The University of Bedfordshire owes its stellar reputation to strong research coupled with an excellent teaching environment. Its curricula is specifically designed to provide students with advanced skills, allowing them to make the most of their university experience and giving them a high competitive edge upon entering the workforce.
The university is dedicated to developing its programmes and aims to increase its focus on research projects. It looks to foster a productive environment for the many students enrolled in the BA and MA programmes it currently offers and aid them in starting their careers, expanding their professional networks, and contributing positively to their respective fields
